MHCO is not engaged in the practice of law. Information provided by its speakers, officers directors, representatives or legal counsel, at seminars or membership gatherings, whether public or private, does not constitute “legal advice,” to you, and you do not have the right to rely upon it to the exclusion of seeking your own independent legal counsel. The dissemination of general legal information from our legal counsel to you in public or private forums, including telephonically, does not make you his client or our, and should not be construed as specific legal advice. Any attorney-client relationship you develop with MHCO’s legal counsel must be confirmed in writing from his firm, and shall occur independent of his legal relationship with our organization. MHCO does not guarantee the accuracy of the legal information you may receive from your chosen attorney, even if he is also MHCO’s attorney.
MHCO EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS THAT IT, OR ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES OR COMPANY COUNSEL ARE ACTING AS YOUR SPECIFIC LEGAL COUNSEL.

Calling the MHCO or its legal counsel should not be construed as the rendering of legal advice to you. Always make sure that your own attorney confirms your legal decision before proceeding.
